2021 Digital Championships and Seminar Recap

Sunday, August 1, 2021 - 5:51pm

On Sunday July 11, 2021 the WHRDA hosted a special day of seminars and global celebration of Italy’s 20th Anniversary.  While there is normally a global gathering in-person each year for a world championship tournament and a week-long training conference, this year we coordinated world time zones to connect via zoom due to the continued COVID restrictions.

The majority of participants were able to join in with their peers from their local Academies & Clubs, as most dojang locations were able to setup a big screen TV experience for the event.  Everyone else connected from home, from cabins, or even from summer vacation settings, and the couple hundred participants moved through a quality online event experience.

Feedback and Insights from the 2021 WHRDA Digital Championships and Seminars

Sunday, August 1, 2021 - 4:40pm

“Hwarang Everybody!

The event we took part in this year was a unique opportunity to come together despite this difficult period. Being able to meet in person and share training together by learning directly from the Masters is undoubtedly priceless, but our digital event managed to  meet  our high expectations perfectly .
